    Default Looking for a Custom Leather Sheath...

    I'm looking to have a custom black leather sheath made to house my Izhmash HB-1-01. Meaning I want the leather to go over the plastic sheath with all the tools in it tightly and a good quilaty button snap to hold down the knife handle in the sheath so the knife doesn't keep flopping around in the plastic sheath. I don't want to have to wait for months to get a custom sheath made if at all possible and I don't want it to break the bank.

    Can you post a picture of your knife???

    I'm not quite sure what you mean by the plastic sheath with all the tools......

    Edit: looked up your knife on google.

    If you want to trade for a sheath, I would be happy to make you one, PM sent.

    I think custom built is the only way your gonna get one, and Im guessing it would be more then you paid for the knife. But thats all just my opinion.

    For the top shelf it will be more.... http://www.martinsheaths.com/

    You should buy the tools and leather and make your own. It will be about $300.00 total but you will have lots of extra leather and tools and knowledge afterward to continue on. That's my plan anyway.

    Best tutorials are here: Leodis Leather

    Those are some nice sheaths but I just don't have that kind of money right now, not for a sheath at least. Wish I could but got to buy a lighter tarp first. Really thinking about going with the BCUSA tarp first, got to lighten my load for more comfort before I can invest again on my knives.

    This is the piece I would really like to be leather instead of this strap. It just doesn't sit well on my belt and the little leather button thing does not hold the knife well, would like a good snap on it. I ain't sneaking up on no animal or human with this thing so I don't really care about the sound of it snapping.
